MANSFIELD, N.J. (AP) - The owner of a horse in southern New Jersey that died of neglect this year has pleaded guilty to animal cruelty charges.

The Courier-Post reports (https://on.cpsj.com/1R03ES2 ) that Kelly Schreiber pleaded guilty last week after a 9-year-old thoroughbred horse she owned died in March.

The Burlington County Humane Police say Toby was seized from Schreiber’s farm in Mansfield on Feb. 20. It died after emergency surgery on March 2. A second horse seized from her farm survived and is now owned by someone else.

Humane Police spokesman Armand King says she was fined $4,500 and ordered to pay $5,000 for the horse’s medical care. She was also banned from ever owning a horse.

Schreiber could not immediately be reached for comment.
